A deep tissue massage is very similar to the Swedish massage technique, with added pressure. The deep pressure is releases toxins and is beneficial in chronic muscle tension.
A deep tissue massage concentrates on repairing damaged tissue. The deep pressure applied will encourage the scar tissue to heal along with pain and stress relief and create a better range of motion.
Studies have shown that massage therapy can help lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while promoting relaxation, triggering the release of serotonin and oxytocin which are hormones that affect a patient’s mood.
Our massage therapists offer deep tissue massages and we encourage you to speak with your RMT to determine if this treatment would be beneficial for you.Back
